How do I block an IP address from accessing my site?

Having a website is synonymous with having both good users as well as bad ones.  Bad users may mean that either they are stealing information from your website and publishing elsewhere, or they may spam your website with unsolicited comments on your articles, or simply post content that may not be in the best interests of internet users. Therefore, they can be blocked from having access to your website by means of blocking their IP Address to your website.

1.  Log in to your cPanel account.

2.  Navigate to Security >IP Blocker.
